Chinese Medicine practitioners advise pregnant women to relax and follow tranquil pursuits, to eat foods rich in calcium and fibre to avoid constipation. It is very important to move around, to prevent Qi and Blood stagnation which can lead to oedema or high blood pressure.

An active pregnancy also makes labour easier. Pregnant Chinese women with high blood pressure can be given herbal medicine. Always consult a GP before taking any medicines in pregnancy.
